I am currently using the Election Polling Place template application for ArcGIS 10.1.  I have the need to add  a print button to the application. 

Using the sample ???Print dijit Print Templates Created using esri.request??? form the ArcGIs API for JavaScript samples page as a guide, I adjusted the code to handle the  new print button.

When I use this button I am getting the following error in Firebug ???TypeError: sym is Undefined??? this is coming form ?v=2.8compact (line 48)

Anybody know how I might fix this error

Current code I am using

 // get print templates from the export web map task
             var printInfo = esri.request({
             "url": printURL,
             "content": { "f": "json" }
             printInfo.then(handlePrintInfo, handleError);

function handlePrintInfo(resp) {
        var layoutTemplate, templateNames, mapOnlyIndex, templates;

        layoutTemplate = dojo.filter(resp.parameters, function(param, idx) {
          return === "Layout_Template";
        if ( layoutTemplate.length == 0 ) {
          console.log("print service parameters name for templates must be \"Layout_Template\"");
        templateNames = layoutTemplate[0].choiceList;

        // remove the MAP_ONLY template then add it to the end of the list of templates 
        mapOnlyIndex = dojo.indexOf(templateNames, "MAP_ONLY");
        if ( mapOnlyIndex > -1 ) {
          var mapOnly = templateNames.splice(mapOnlyIndex, mapOnlyIndex + 1)[0];
        // create a print template for each choice
        templates =, function(ch) {
          var plate = new esri.tasks.PrintTemplate();
          plate.layout = plate.label = ch;
          plate.format = "PDF";
          plate.layoutOptions = { 
            "authorText": "May by:  Esri's JS API Team",
            "copyrightText": "<copyright info here>",
            "legendLayers": [], 
            "titleText": "Pool Permits", 
            "scalebarUnit": "Miles" 
          return plate;

        // create the print dijit
        var printer = new esri.dijit.Print({
          "map": map,
          "templates": templates,
          url: printURL
        }, dojo.byId("print_button"));

      function handleError(err) {
        console.log("Something broke: ", err);
